Dust jacket:

Not seen, but the dust jackets for the first and second printings (and the fourth; we haven't seen the third) are identical. We'd guess this jacket would be the same.

Notes:

This one is a bit of a puzzle. It's not listed in Hall, but several copies are known to exist. It is identical to the 1923 first printing (Jur-C1), except for the 1924 date on the title page recto, as well as a completely different title verso. If the 1926 printing (Jur-C2) didn't clearly state Second Printing | August, 1926, we'd call this a second printing, after the 1923 first. As it is, we are classing it as the second state of the first printing. We leave open the real possibility, though, that this is actually an unrecorded second printing separate from the 1923 first.
